Eddie Longpants is big. Really big. He has long legs and huge feet and gangly arms that dangle down from his shoulders and bump into everything. Every day at school, his classmates find new ways to bully him. When things get too painful, he takes refuge under his favorite tree.

But one day the bullying goes too far and the teacher notices. Then Eddie shows his tormentor that there's more than one way to behave. In the end Eddie and his classmates realize that being big isn't so bad after all, especially when you have a big heart.
